i have 4 red clawed crabs since Tuesday, 2 fairly big ones and 2 littler, today one of the little ones was found upside down and very pale. after a few pokes there seems to be no movement. has it passed away during molting? i've heard people suggest iodine supplements perhaps i should invest in them?
tank setup last saturday and added a de-choline, de-nitrate and de-something else but dont have have the bottle to hand. crabs acclimatized for a couple of hours before adding, they seemed happy throughout the week, eating etc...
lizroberts mentioned in another post molting shortly after a new tank can be very stressful, from the fact it was very pale and translucent do you think this sounds the cause
sorry its been a while,but just thought i'd share the good news (belated as it is...) the crab wasn't in the great tank in the sky, it had molted and the person watching them for me assumed it had, when it had just molted!
2 successfully molted now so all is good, thanks guys!
